There are a few. I have friends in my WBCCI unit who own an RV park in Lubbock, and we have an AIRForums member who until recently owned a park near Angel Fire. I'd say the ones who can identify the year of an Airstream are also the ones who can guesstimate pretty well what's a well-maintained RV and what's not and make their decisions that way.

Sort of! What's incorrect is that we don't own the park any more. Still here, though we need to move to lower elevation as soon as we can!

What's true is that i really enjoy guessing the year of Airstreams. Have to admit that the newer ones are harder to tell apart for me. The really obvious ones are vintage. Then the job is to pin an exact year to one of them.

THANKS! Ive decided i have way more things to do with my time like make money, hit the road and enjoy life. Prob is there are 3 parks in ATLANTA being JONES-20min north of atl, ATL SOUTH-40min south of atl, who both have age restrictions and STONE MOUNTAIN which is really set up for the weekly tourist (great park and ammenities though). Moving on to way more productitve endevors!
